that kathleen sebelius put out today, is that there are like 27 million visits, not sure if they're unique visits, people coming back perhaps, but that's a lot of interest. there's a lot of interest in this country. >> it's not so much -- >> in the affordable care act. >> not so much the confidence level in the president resulting from the failed website, it's from the pledge that he made repeatedly look at these numbers, a new quinnipiac university poll, the president it's job approval number is now down to 39% approve of the job as handling his job as president. 54% disapprove. that's another low for the -- for this president. >> let me give you ather number, the questn whether you trust the president, consider him is down 10 pointsince october. andha is as a direct result of saying to people, you can keep your -- you can keep your health care if you like. >> it's because of the -- if you like your plan you can keep your plan. >> and that goes to the -- a design. the administration said we are going to have a program to bring coverage to more people, many of whom will be poor and sicke
you heard from kathleen sebelius asking for your help? have you heard from thehite house? have you heard from anyone in washington about this? >> no, not yet. and, you know, i hope that, you know in the future we'll actually be able to work with the government to get more, richer data sets. right now we're working with a very limited set of plan information. we're trying to quickly gather as much information as we can so we can reach as many people as we can. but really, you know if we had a broader data set that the government does have available we would be able to, you know, have a much larger impact i think. melissa: ming, what is your plan from here? is this a real business you set up with a profit motive going forward? was it just something you did in a few hours to see if you could do it? or is this a company that you're going to run? >> we haven't really talked about any sort of monetizaton or whether or not it is going to be a company. for now the goal is to provide the best user experience around, comparing and finding plans, understanding your subsidy options, understand
to the american indian community. we heard health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius address what these across the board cuts have meant today. >> these cuts mean 3,000 fewer in-patient admissions, and unconsciencably 804,000 fewer out patient visits for patients. 804,000 trips that should be to the doctor or to see a nurse or to keep people healthy have been cut. it's congress who has to take action on a realistic budget, getting rid of sequestration and preventing the next round of arbitrary cuts from having a devastating impact. >> she pointed out that one in every three american indians does not have health care in this country. also the elderly are especially in danger of not being covered. she talked about healthcare.gov, the website on everybody's mind here and encouraged people to try to use that resource. i heard one tribal leader say it would have been good to use the community to test the model. >> secretary of state john kerry also set to speak as a congressional hearing today. he will be talking about iran's nuclear program. he just returned from talks in geneva. spea
with the federal exchange. >> was there a conference call today to follow up? >> there was. kathleen sebelius was on it, and her tone was actually confident saying we know there have been problems. she did address the issue and said we'll give you more data with regard to demographics next month. right now it's difficult to get the data and difficult for it to be reliable. this is just the first month. some states have been talking about what is going on in november. >> talk about addressing the issue, that president obama will be speaking out tomorrow on this and the thing in particular that people are concerned about, can i keep my original insurance policy? is there anything the president can do to make that happen at this point? >> it will be interesting to see. obviously, there are legislators that want to a pass a bill that would allow people to keep those plans. there are those who say it's difficult for the insurers at this point because they priced when they need to offer next week -- next year rather and for them to go back and keep the plans for another year might be difficult, in
and gentlemen kathleen sebelius, secretary of the united states department of health and human services. [applause] >> good morning. good morning everybody. it's my great pleasure to have another opportunity to be at this historic meeting of native americans and alaska natives here at the department of the interior. i want to recognize my colleague secretary sally jewell who has been a terrific addition to the cabinet and a wonderful colleague and partner on a lot of issues. thank you for hosting today and thank you for your leadership. you just heard from secretary shinseki and as he said we have worked together on a friday of initiatives that benefit to the indian country and i'm going to talk about a few of those. in the audience and with you all day long will be our great leader of the indian health services dr. yvette roubideaux who i can tell you is a tireless advocate for better health in indian country and thank you to dr. roubideaux and stacy who works with her intergovernmental relations department. i am also pleased that we have some of our staff members here. one of the thin
friend by kathleen sebelius we learned details how many have enrolled on the federal web site. not even 27,000. statistate exchanges fared bettt still not what they are hoping for. obamacare is in for a long, hard slog. combine with state figures it could take 6 years on meet the government goals of enrolling 7 million people, that is 6 years rather than 6 months. what is a few years with government work? that my two cents more. >> macy's predicts a merry christmas shopping seen, other retailers are worried, are you spending more or less? we ask the question on jerry will it.com, 15% said yes, said more, 85 % said less. coming up tomorrow, our users guide to shopping continues with a look at must-have shopping apps, thank you for joining us, have a great night. lou: a big day in america, we know now wher where the obama administration has refused for so long to tell the public, many americans have signed up for obamacare. hhs secretary sebelius confirms just a short time ago initial enroll am numbers are woefully short of administration's targets, and far below the lowered expectations.
are not going to do that. neil: what do you think of your successor, kathleen sebelius, do you think she should go? >> i don't think that is up to me to say. neil: go ahead. >> no, no, she has a lot of problems and, i think you know, she needs to try to find a way to solv some of the problem. neil: but she is not, i am not trying to target her but she is in charge of department in charge of biggest rework. and fairly or not she botched it roll out either she was not prepared for it or they were not prepared with key i-t people or medical people, it is a sloppy debut, in private enterprise she would be out. >> yes, she would, when we rolled out part d he tested everything, week after week, any time we had a problem, we retested it, they just didn't do that. as a result they had a roll out that was not very nice. and solved -- or solved any of the problem. neil: that is putting it mildly, tommy thompson thank you, sir. >> neil thank you. neil: is it me or when you look at washington and politicians, if there plenty out there, they will find a way to spend it that is why president clinton a let'si
. health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius just addressed this. fox business's rich edson is in washington sorting this all out. rich, what is the reaction? >> it is predictable from republicans and democrats, at least there is interest. 27 million people according to health and human services logged on to the website but only 106,000 managed to complete applications. we don't know if the applications went all the way tip surers and we don't know how many are young, healthy people that are needed to make the system work and pay premiums. 106,000 you mentioned. only 27 of those 106,000 come from the federal exchanges. rest come from the state exchanges. 975,000 made it through the application process but did not select a insurance plan. the republicans say they're inflated. they're using amazon analogy. a number of people may have put them in shopping carts online but not necessarily went through and paid for them this is from the ways and means committee chairman dave camp, these early enrollment numbers are inflated to include those just shopping for the plan. even if thi
kathleen sebelius did. come on and say we are sorry and it's not where it needs to be. we are working around the clock and it will be up and running by november 30th. we are putting time into making sure it's viable. look for issa to get into the nitty greaty and say when did you know it wasn't working. was it an issue of contractors? you mentioned the officer for the white house. another interesting guy to look at is the it gentlemen named henry chow. he's not a political appointee. he served republicans and democrats. he will be someone who knows how this website was created through cms and that's the guy who delivers the most explosive testimony on the republican side. overall what this is today is really the gop plan for the rest of the year. as one leadership aide told me, this is the health care holiday season. they don't have anything else to do. the government is funded until january 15th. immigration is not going to happen. the farm bill is facing an uphill battle. this is where they will put their time and effort from now until christmas. you saw that strategy. drip, drip, d
ways, torte reform. the president brought in kathleen sebelius ahead of the trial association for 11 years. we need torte reform so the doctors don't have to order too many tests. the pre-existing conditions, i think, should be pooled to an assigned risk where they have to pay more, similar to what is current. i was able to get insurance when i was younger but the state required the insurance companies provide that pool. i'd also like to agree with the gentleman from pennsylvania about the federal reserve. i wonder if most americans see that it's a board of international bankers that decide our interest rates. host: reid, we have a lot of topics there. let's have the congressman respond. guest: reid, let's start with medical liability. you mentioned that. when the health care law was first being driven through congress in 2009, i remember being summoned to the white house, abdur-rahim was the chief of staff. he had -- rahm emanuel was the chief of staff. he had me and some other republicans up to chat and i raised the issue of medical liability reform in that meeting and rahm said we
november. health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius revealed figures on a conference call with reporters moments ago a call that came two hours after president obama's top i.t. guy finished testifying on capitol hill about what went so wrong. >> the white house had originally claimed that its chief technology officer was too busy to testify about the it continued failings of healthcare.gov so the chairman of the house oversight committee thoughtfully had helped him clear his schedule with a subpoena. >> this was a monumental mistake to go live and effectively explode on the launch pad. >> reporter: todd park, appearing today with other government technology experts at the hearing which more than once devolved into partisan sniping. >> i wasn't insulting your -- >> i take it as an insult. >> park, while taking his lobs for the website's poor performance revealed the number of users it can currently take on at once. >> the system has been comfortably handling at present about 20 to 25,000 current users. >> reporter: great, except that's only about half its intended capacity.
-election. but senator landrieu, she voted for this law. and they said look at the federal register, kathleen sebelius put all the regulations in place that will actually make all the grandfather laws meaningless, she voted against him. so did all of the others, now, when they come out and say they're shocked, shocked, let me fix it for you. >> it doesn't matter whether they're believed or not. the fact is, they want to do something, they're feeling frustrated, happy people don't tend to call their senators. so it is not surprising the feinstein numbers are 37-18, as james pointed out, the overwhelming majority of the people are going to do better under this law. and the president is trying really hard to fix it and he needs to be given a little bit of time. the party can't panic -- >> that is one thing he doesn't have right now is time. people are about to lose their insurance come january first, if they don't have replacement insurance there is a lot of questions about who will take care of them and their families. coming up, one questionable ad and one angry lawmaker, he is asking did really change
doable. but during a conference call today, health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius told reporters that when the state of massachusetts passed its own law, enrollment there started very slowly, just 123 people in the first month. >> we know experience in the bay >> wooduff: mary agnes carey of kaiser health news is with us again tonight. it's an editorially independent news organization. mary agnes, welcome back to the program. so what did we learn today from the administration's official release of these numbers? >> well, they're lower than expected. administration officials for days, for weeks, have been trying to dampen expectations. these numbers would be great, and they certainly were not. of the 10 6,000 people that have enrolled, you have about a quarter of those through the federal exchanges, and those are in 36 states. that's really a big chunk of states that are being run by the federal government, the exchanges, and then the remaining three-fourths were three the state exchanges set up in about 15 states and the district of column ja. >> woodruff: three to one
find your social security number -- >> last month chairman issa subpoenaed kathleen sebelius for documents related to the rollout. let's just say he hasn't been happy with the response. >> to date, hhs has not produced a single responsive document to this committee. in contrast, the committee has received far more cooperation, transparency and document production receiving over 100,000 relevant documents from the private sector, from contractors working on this project, the very contractors who were blamed on day one as their fault, not the single political appointees fault, not obama's fault. >> it has certainly been a rough go for the president lately. to add to the pile on, you have one of the loudest voices in the democratic party essentially siding with republicans on one part of obama care. thts what bill clinton said yesterday in an interview, even if it takes a change in the law, the president should honor the commitment and let them keep what they got. this in my mind continues to feed public trust. on a law that is already unpopular. you're looking at me, smiling at
secretary, kathleen sebelius, announcing on a conference call that just over 106,000 signed up on the aca private exchanges in the first month. as the white house has warned, not up to their own or anyone else's expectations but there's more. nearly 400,000 have now been accessed as eligible for medicaid, or oh the children's health insurance program. and nearly 1 million customers have gotten all the way through the application process but have yet to select a plan. enrollments are improving, uninsured rates going down, growth in health care costs is slowing, and even that troubled website is getting better. but whatever you do, do not try telling that to darrell issa. just look at what happens. >> more and more individuals are successfully creating accounts, logging in, and moving on to apply for coverage and shop for plans. >> we are not able to process nearly 17,000 registrations per hour or 5 per second with no errors. >> if you can tell us 17,000 are signing upper hour why is a subpoena unanswered as to how many have signed up? is please, don't answer yet. >> don't answer that. the
for so long now. 26,794. health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius is releasing these numbers right now in a conference call with reporters and telling reporters that nearly 400,000 people have been determined to be eligible for medicaid or the children's health insurance program. medicaid was expanded as part of obama care. these numbers have been a closely guarded secret by the administration. they have struggled in the last few weeks to explain the severe technical difficulties that users have found on healthcare.gov and we see with only 26,794 individuals being enrolled, those numbers affected by the disastrous rollout of this website. we're bringing you complete coverage as the administration finally releases these numbers. here with me, our chief political analyst, gloria borger, dana bash, and jim acosta is outside the white house. gloria, let's start with you. what do you make of these numbers? about 27 million visitors to the health care exchanges. and over 100,000 enrolled in both the federal and state exchanges. but still, only 26,794 able to enroll through healthca
services secretary kathleen sebelius asking whether all standards were met prior to the launch of healthcare.gov, the web site to sign up for obamacare. we've asked secretary sebelius to provide answers and information to a series of questions dealing what level of security and privacy measures were undertaken prior to the launch of the web site to safeguard the privacy of those americans signing up for coverage through healthcare.gov. this is a serious concern that must be addressed. additionally, because of the law, some businesses are cutting back on employees and on hours making it harder for americans to find full-time jobs. and those who do hold onto their full-time jobs could lose their employer-sponsored private insurance and are instead being dumped into the exchange or into a failing medicaid system. these are just some of the unfortunate realities we are facing with the implementation of obamacare. as these stories continue to pour in, i urge all my colleagues on both sides of the aisle along with the president to carefully listen to the american people, to the ameri
in obamacare but at 3:30 health and human services secretary kathleen smith sibelius wrote is 6 -- kathleen sebelius will talk about how many signed up for obamacare through the web site. the administration expects the and the love and even lower than expectations because of the problems with the web site. the administration is looking at another deadline, november '32, the vast majority of users will use the web site and that was the question aimed at the panel going on today if the administration can meet its latest deadline. >> tell us when it will be in good shape. can you give us a date? is the end of the month realistic? >> the team is working hard to hit the goal. that is what i will say right now.here are two main problems with obamacare. the first is dealing with a website and those issues and that was the focus of the hearing today and the second is whether or not the president was telling the truth that you could keep your health insurance plan if you liked it, cancellation notices and acknowledgements from the administration show that is not the whole truth sell there are bills
, the president was interviewed last thursday and was asked about secretary sebelius. he said the president defected interview.from the argued that the website bugs aren't necessarily her fault. quote, kathleen sebelius doesn't write codes. she wasn't our i.t. person. who is the i.t. person? who is the person in charge, who is the person responsible, who is the one who signed off on this bhf it went public? >> the person that's somebody is our administrator, marilyn tavener. >> did she base her decisions on the memo you sent her on the 27th, isn't that right? is that the authority to operate memo? the president talked about i.t. person. miss tavener person. who is that? is that mr. van roekel? mr. park? mr. chao? which of you is that person? >> i don't know. i didn't speak to the president. >> he refers to a person. who would it be? who is the i.t. person in charge? >> i don't know what the president was referring to. >> let me start with slide c-3 if i could. this is the report, final c.m.s. final report came out october 13 after october 1, just want to read the first, was unable to adequa
and reported on. we'll hear the facts. we do know kathleen see breel yus, secretary sebelius has already said they are going to be low. what does that do to the discussion in moving forward with this deadline looming of november 30th and today the testimony being that the vast majority of people will be able to get on the website but we cannot guarantee 100%. >> i think everybody agrees the website situation is absolutely unacceptable. even if it was running perfectly, we would expect the enrollment numbers at this point in time in the affordable care act through the exchange to be very low. we know that based on the experience they had in massachusetts where at the state level they implemented a very similar plan. it shouldn't surprise anybody even if the website were up and running perfectly, most people take a little bit of time to shop around and don't need their final selection until the deadline gets near. so yes, we've got to get this website up and running because right now people aren't able to figure out what their alternatives could be. but even if it were running perfectly, you wo
